Like I said my post wasn't a shot at anyone in particular but a wake up call for the whole server. Every guild is going to have its insufficiency, that's natural and its great that you are bringing in new players to the mix however like I said this is pre-season. There is nothing to show for it, it is there for all of us to practice. It means nothing so to make it anymore than what it is would be foolish.

You saw the teams I fielded in Exiles. Some teams were solid and others were not so much but we all had fun (at least I did) in all those matches which is what I was looking for.

As far as I've seen shadowfury their 4 man's work good, but nobody has seen them in ranked yet. One can only hope. By the way, I thought the rhyme was funny. :P

I agree to a certain extent. One is team chemistry, the other is composition. I know speaking for us, not all of us knew each other. So we had to build that trust in warzones. It's absolutely vital. Then you have team composition. If you have a premade vs a pug, let's just say its on huttball, the premade has no tanks, no pulls, but the pug does. In that scenario, the superior team composition of the pug will win that match. I've seen plenty of top pvp guilds beaten by pugs, and also had my hand in some of them. I think we even lost to a pug once. It doesn't mean the guild is bad, just that they were outplayed. While team chemistry will be an advantage, it means nothing if the other team is better suited for that particular warzone.

also just because you have a pug team with pulls doesn't mean they will be a premade... I've seen lots of players not use pulls for an entire match in huttball...

Same can be said of premades. There are some premades who while they may have the same tag, don't function as a team. Also, you can't deny that pubs have a far better pool of pugs than imperials. We have it worse than you guys, matches with 3-4 people in leveling greens with 11 and 12k health. Some matches with pugs like that we lose, but some we win. Again, that's the way the game is played.

Agreeing with you on this, (Weird right? ) But yeah, when I got my marauder to 50 I was really happy, then I realized each match was full of 3-4 people with ~11k HP. T'was a sad day.

Speaking about low hp toons! I have a story! I logged in my Sage healer lastnight and decided to finish up my weekly since the week was coming to an end, my Sage has a hair over 14k HP buffed. However I got into a game all pugs except for Flux and Scyn were flying around capping and laying waste to those dirty imps like we had been playing for some time.

We went into the closing seconds with 0 deaths until I saw Scyn looking out towards Snow like he was wanting to go after it (8 people strong) so I said what the hell and tossed a bubble on him and off we went 3v8. We posted 1 death for that game but it was good times.
